2016 was another banner year for moi book reading wise, with 25 volumes being consumed!
Lots of Geek stuff of course, some mysteries, a thriller, and a fiction in a pear tree. I also continue with quite a few YA reads as well, and happily dived back into Judy Blume.
But my big big big new development, was that after almost twenty years, I finally started beaming down on that huge hunk of Star Trek books I have. Long ago in the 1980s and 1990s, I inhaled Star Trek books by the ton, but walked away when the crazy crossover “epics” became too much of a convoluted cashgrab, IMHO.
So my reading for 2016 was:
The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith, aka J.K. Rowling
Man of Steel novelization by Greg Cox
Superman The Power Within by Roger Stern and Curt Swan
True Patriot by various
Superman in the Forties by various
Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith, aka J.K. Rowling
About A Boy by Nick Hornby, in a readalong with @Rebeccahh95
Angel Love by Barbara Slate
‘Mazing Man by Bob Rozakis and Stephen DeStefano
Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley
Captain America Truth by Robert Morales and Kyle Baker
Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman
The Shining Girl by Lauren Beukes on the kindle, my first book on an ereader
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling
A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle
Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
She of the Mountains by Vivek Shraya
Star Trek Prime Directive by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens
Star Trek Spock’s World by Diane Duane
Star Trek The Next Generation Q Squared by Peter David
Wonder Woman True Amazon by Jill Thompson
Harriet Tubman The Road to Freedom by Catherine Clinton
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume
Otherwise known as Sheila the Great by Judy Blume
Superfudge by Judy Blume
My absolute favourite book for 2016 has been Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. Simply amazing with a real gut punch.
My second favourite book for 2016 was Captain America Truth by Robert Morales and Kyle Baker. A stunning tale with a real world feel.
What 2017 holds for my reading pleasure is a good guess. I hope to keep plugging away at Star Trek, and maybe hit the kindle some more. That’s the plan, but remember what they always say about plans!
Hope you all have great reading this year!!
…is currently reading Star Trek The Last Roundup by Christie Golden. A sixth (or is it fifth?) Star Trek book in twenty years.
